Be What’s Next. Media Ventures
The future belongs to the innovators. The dreamers who are also do-ers. It starts with creativity at the convergence of media and technology. Ideas that not only cross platforms, but anticipate new ones.
But it also means knowing how to apply those ideas. That’s what being a do-er is about. And what the Master’s in Media Ventures is about: our faculty teaches you the skills, strategy and process of developing your ideas to build a successful career.
So whether you’ve got the next killer app or want to take a traditional industry leader to the next level, get ready to create the media’s future. And your own.
Roll up your sleeves.
This is no passive program. Designed by leading media executives, the Master’s in Media Ventures curriculum is very much hands-on and career-oriented.
Start with an idea and build it out over the course of the program. Learn the process of taking an idea from concept to the market. Then, pitch it to a panel of leading media executives and entrepreneurs. Media Ventures faculty, COM alumni, and biz-savvy mentors coach you through the process, one on one.
